Never Come Down, with Skillethead opening
Dec 21 @ 8:00 pm – 11:00 pm

The evening starts with local band Skillethead at 8:00, opening for Portland-based band — 2019 RockyGrass band competition winners — Never Come Down who weave Americana, Bluegrass and other styles into their beautiful and unique brand of music. Doors open at 7:00.

Never Come Down, Portland band

"If you never take a chance, you can never get it wrong … so you better take a chance before it’s gone."
These lyrics from the song "Chances" on their self-titled debut album have become a mantra for the members of Never Come Down.  As Joe Suskind puts it, "I suddenly had all these opportunities — hosting a weekly bluegrass showcase, meeting a publisher who liked my music and finding musicians who were writing, playing, and aligning their lives with their craft like me. We all felt the pull to take a chance on our music and each other. We’re taking a real swing at it."

Earnest songwriting, dedication to craft, and genuine care for the music is at the forefront of what they do. "We never tell each other what to play. You can feel when the music is right." It’s that feeling — that space Never Come Down creates — that has captivated audiences from the onset.

And opening for them: A collection of Central Oregon's finest bluegrass pickers have decided to bring their living room jams to the people as Skillethead. Drawing repertoire from the bluegrass tradition while interspersing original tunes, the group offers banjo-driven, vocal harmony-laden, good-old American music with a twist. Members include Joe Schulte (Moon Mountain Ramblers, Popcorn), Garret Miller (Larkspur Stand), Benji Nagel (Honey Don't, The Spoilers), and Aaron Moore (CJ Neary Band, Derek Michal Marc).

Sassparilla
Dec 28 @ 8:00 pm – 11:00 pm

They are pungent, not subtle. The people who are experiencing them are well aware that they're doing something wrong, but the self-medication takes, more times than not, and they're able to withstand it all. They fall into problems and rarely, if ever, claw their way out of them. It's just one black hole of issues swirling around them, stinking up the place. Kevin Blackwell, the lead singer for the dirty bluegrass band out of Portland, Oregon, encapsulates the general character who calls these songs home, on "Mary Celeste...All this misery keeps great company. It's the liquor cabinet that takes a hurt.

New Year’s Eve Roaring Twenties Party
Dec 31 2019 @ 8:00 pm – Jan 1 2020 @ 1:00 am

Ring in the New Year with a flashback to the Roaring Twenties! Wear your finest to slip into the Speakeasy mentality and dance to fabulous local band,

Company Grand!

Started in the Summer of 2014 by Lucas James and Riley Winslow, Company Grand is a 9-piece exhilarating band that performs a range of Rock & Roll, Blues, Funk, and Rhythm & Blues originals – along with a wide array of covers.

Lucas and Riley provide exciting, and eccentric song writing, and electrifying musicianship on keyboard and guitar, respectively. Later, Haley Jordan joined these two on the song writing front, rounding out the bands sound, and adding jaw-dropping lead vocals.

Their rhythm section is rounded out by Tyler Cranor (Bass), Patrick Ondrozeck (Drums and Keys), and Mesham Jackson (Drums and Percussion). All three studied music at universities across the country, and combine their diverse musical backgrounds to create the most exciting dance grooves you’ll hear. Our horn section consists of Keemun Senff on trumpet, Dan Flagg on Trombone, and Steve Prazek on Sax and Flute. Again, all three are university trained and have played in orchestras and bands for decades. The combination of all of these talented and diverse musicians come together to create the unforgettable experience that is Company Grand.

Tommy Castro and The Pain Killers
Feb 27 @ 7:00 pm – 10:30 pm

“Castro’s aggressive, inspired attack on vocals and guitar is phenomenal.” –Washington Post

Whether he’s squeezing out the deepest blues or playing the funkiest soul grooves, legendary blues and soul giant Tommy Castro knows how to ignite a crowd. Over the course of his still-unfolding career, the guitarist, vocalist and songwriter has released 15 albums ranging from horn-fueled soul and R&B to piping hot blues to fiery rock ‘n’ roll. He’s performed all over the world, earning countless fans with his legendary, sweat-drenched, exhilarating live shows. Castro’s band, The Painkillers—bassist Randy McDonald, drummer Bowen Brown  and keyboardist Michael Emerson—have now been playing together over four years. After hundreds of live shows, they have coalesced into one of the telepathically tightest units Castro has ever assembled, making them one of the most in-demand live roots music acts performing today. Billboard says the band plays “irresistible contemporary blues-rock” with “street-level grit and soul.”
